I was a recent college graduate with a fabulous education from one of the top universities in the state. Jobs were hard to come by so when I got an interview with Seven Marketing, Inc. in Dallas, I was ecstatic. Needless to say, those feelings went by the wayside QUICKLY.
I was first brought in for a first round interview. Turns out, it wasn't even with the "president" of Seven, it was with another portly fellow. The "interview" took about fifteen minutes and was nothing about my resume or past jobs or internships. He asked me to come in for a second round interview and wrote the hours door as "1-8 Friday". This should've been my first red flag. A full day for a second round "interview/shadowing"??
The second round interview was supposedly with one of the top guys in the company so I felt great about it. Turns out it was all DOOR TO DOOR selling/scamming for AT&T U-Verse. They eventually got two people to switch to U-Verse and felt great about it. At lunch, he broke down the "advancement opportunities". It is 100% COMMISSION based with NO BENEFITS. He made it seem like in a year you would own your own office and make a six figure salary. SECOND RED FLAG.
The third and final round was immediately after we got back (approximately 8:15 pm) and was with Casey, the president of Seven. Somehow he got me to accept a job offer. But the hours (11-8 pm), the commission based salary, no benefits, and door to door selling was too much for me to keep telling myself it was a good job. This job was horrible and should not be marketed as a "MARKETING FIRM". It is anything but. It is a door to door selling U-Verse company that preys on wide-eyed college graduates. KEEP AWAY.
